Friends of the Temecula Libraries is a volunteer organization aided by the gracious donations of members, Book Friends, and patrons of the used book stores. If you enjoy visiting the libraries and attending programs with your children, we encourage you to join us and get involved!
Members are the lifeblood of Friends of the Temecula Libraries. By joining, you have the satisfaction of knowing that you are supporting continued literacy in our community and bringing valuable books, resources, and programs to the public. You can also become more involved through an assortment of volunteer opportunities.
Honor or memorialize a special person in you and your family’s life by becoming a Book Friend. With a donation of as little as $25, you can have an individualized book plate affixed inside a book and made part of the collections at both libraries. Show someone how much you care while promoting the value of reading. Plus, all donations are matched by Friends of the Temecula Libraries so that each library receives a copy of the book.
Volunteers keep Friends of the Temecula Libraries running. We are always looking for help in the used bookstores at both libraries, working on our website, leading hospitality initiatives, and much more! If you’re inspired to give back and love connecting with the community, we invite you to become a volunteer.
Friends of the Temecula Libraries supports both the Ronald H. Roberts Temecula Public Library on Pauba Road, and the Grace Mellman Community Library on County Center Drive just north of Winchester and Ynez. We invite you to check out both locations!
Support Friends of Temecula Libraries
We rely on support from individuals, families, groups, and businesses to help our organization thrive. If you are an avid reader, enjoy taking your children to interactive programs, spend time with your loved ones at family programs, or take advantage of the free classes and events for adults, we encourage you to become a member of the Friends of the Temecula Libraries. It is through your membership, volunteering, and donations that we are able to continue providing exceptional levels of support to the local libraries. We are proud to bring exciting and informational programs to the community as well as a continuous supply of new books to support ongoing literacy.
Who we are
Friends of the Temecula Libraries raises funds to support valuable and engaging programs at the libraries such as the Summer Reading Program for children and other events for users of all ages. We provide money to the libraries to purchase new books, additional copies of current books, special equipment or technology, and other materials to create a more robust and enriching environment for the community. All of the proceeds raised from membership fees and through the used book stores at the Ronald H. Roberts Temecula Public Library and the Grace Mellman Community Library are invested back into the libraries. In addition, individuals and groups who make donations through Book Friends are recognized through customized book plates placed inside the books purchased with their gift. Book Friend donations are matched by Friends of the Temecula Libraries.
